ABU DHABI – Dinner at Katsuya

Yas Mall opened a new Japanese Restaurant and damn it’s expensive. The restaurant is called Katsuya. Honestly, it should be under fine dining.

Since I started a new job, I thought it would be a great idea to invite Tim for a meal. This time, I decided to go full on meat since I was treating Tim and he is not really fond of vegetarian dishes.

While reading the chef’s signature dishes, I came across Black Cod which reminded me of Zuma. It’s my favourite dish from Zuma, I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Of course, I ordered the dish, it doesn’t taste as good as Zumas HOWEVER, it is the closest than any other restaurants I’ve tried and so was the price LOL.

We also ordered Wagyu beef since Tim is a  massive red meat lover and I’m not but I gave it a try and the quality of the meat was fantastic.

We also had crispy chicken and mochi for dessert. For drinks, we ordered Jasmine Tea and it was WOW.

I highly recommend it but heads up, it’s extremely expensive.

Wokyo – Japanese Noodle Restaurant in Dubai

Wokyo serves the best Japanese noodles in Dubai. They are located in JLT, Cluster J. Tim and I must have visited that place more than 3 times already and tried all kinds of noodles and sauces.

The staff are very friendly and the service is prompt. The restaurant sells Japanese products as well as has Japanese board games and books to entertain yourself and of course origami.

The place is worth visiting and you can go for a nice walk around the area after finishing your meal. It’s one of the best Japanese casual restaurants that Tim and I enjoy going back to.
